    I found the food quite overpriced considering it’s a very casual restaurant. My salmon had a very salty crust and the side of rice was dry and tasteless. Overall I would say it was disappointing.

    Food was fair but expensive. There’s much better options for dining around the area that is equally expensive or less. The rice that came with the fish was way over cooked. It was soggy and just fell apart before it hit your tongue. The mashed potato was too salty. The fish was good but the lobster tail and a half left a lot to be desired. Service was great. Food would have to be much better for me to go back.

My hubby had the coconut crusted lobster and I had the fresh mahi-mahi with a cream sauce….oh and the conch fritters for our appetizer were some of the best we ever had We are going back this Saturday with our friend coming up from Miami

    Food is good although they need more imagination when it comes to side dishes. Rice and mixed vegetables are the staple. I expect a little more ingenuity when paying $35 for a salmon dish.

    It was our 49th anniversary and Blackfly came recommended. We made 6 PM reservations and it was not busy...unfortunately, the service was indifferent, the food for my wife inedible and it was an exceptionally poor value for the experience. I had a pork chop with mashed potatoes which was fine...except I was still eating those potatoes when a busier named Tyler literally grabbed and took away my plate. My wife had the catch of the day Mahi Mahi. It was listed as coming blackened but she asked if it could be pan fried. She had to cut it with a knife. It was grossly overdone - like salty dry rubber she could not eat. She and I both got under-cooked green beans with cauliflower. Hers was especially over spiced with cayenne and she actually had a coughing fit from it. Her rice was bland. She was unable to eat her meal. The waitress asked and we told her nicely but nothing was done to remedy the situation. The creme brûlée was fine. I was very disappointed that our special night was short and so bad when I wanted to have a very special evening.

    We enjoy the Blackfly and go there during nearly every visit to St. Augustine. Service was a little less-good this time, perhaps just a little out of focus. We were brought bread after our meal, "because I forgot earlier," and we were never offered dessert or dessert menus. The young woman was very sweet, just not really on top of her game this night.

    Excellent experience as always! This restaurant is vibrant with very friendly & attentive service. Pizza was one of the best we have had in St Augustine. We were seated in the back room area , which felt a bit “removed” from the front/bar area, which we prefer. Overall we really enjoy dining here!!

    Steak was cooked perfectly & food was good. Server didn’t serve of bread until after meal arrived. Ambiance & decor was not up to par. Very cafeteria like with the wooden tables & booths & cheap looking wall art. With the looks of the food & pricing online we thought we were getting fine dining but that was not the case. We also put in open table that it was our anniversary & there was no mention of it by staff. Sadly, it was a disappointing experience.

    The Seafood Fra Diavolo was supposed to contain calamari. It did not. The seafood that was provided was sparse. Another one of our party ordered mashed potatoes with their dinner and received home fries.

    Surf and turf with fried rice - flavor of the fried rice was too strong and overbearing. Need to lighten up. Large group was way too noisy even with half of the ceiling being noise absorbing.
